ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 56 Review



The AMD Vega really brought the Radeon back into contention as a great buy for anyone. The ASUS Strix range is constantly high performing. So how does the Strix Vega perform?

Seriously tempted to buy a Vega 56 solely because of Freesync - saving 100€+ on the monitor is kind of a big deal.

Wow those temps and power draw results are seriously interesting! AMDs stock profiles are trash. Interested to find out other peoples OC results. Because if this is consistent then AMD are really making themselves look worse by running more hot and consuming more power than they need.

Also I really want to suggest testing in DX11 for Warhammer 1 and 2. DX12 in that game is very very inconsistent and more often than not worse performance even with AMD. It's hit or miss with AMD and definitely does worse on any Nvidia card.

The cons is that the top MOSFET is still not fully covered by the cooling plate of the heatsink, resulting in extremely high vrm temp on that area just like what guru3d has shown on its vega64 strix review.

If there is ever anything for a gamer and enthusiast to be interested in with Vega, it's what Tom has done here. 65°C at 1600Mhz is excellent. Power consumption is high, but if temperatures and performance is consistent and good then it's not a deal breaker for the majority of PC enthusiasts. Performance still isn't great when compared to the 1070Ti, but it would be a fun card to tweak. It's largely not worth it considering its current £560 price tag (that's what I paid for my faster 11Gbps GTX 1080), but it would be a fun project for those who have a lot of money to spare and are more interested in tweaking than gaming. Vega is more of a passion project than a good all round gaming card.

Asus is really knocking it out of the park lately with their Strix cards....hell their Strix motherboards too. I've always been an Asus fan but they really just seem to be upping their game lately.
